Who are you connected to?
Since you cannot do good to all, you are to pay special attention to those who, by the accidents of time, or place, or circumstances, are brought into closer connection with you.
– St. Augustine of Hippo
Women need each other. We need:
Someone to Listen-James Dobson says women have 100,000 words and men have 20,000. By the end of the day, most men have used all theirs up.
We need other women to hear our story.
Someone to Mentor Us- We need someone who is further down the road to help us find our way.
Someone to Mentor-We need to help someone else find their way.
Someone to Motivate You– I don’t want to get up at 5:30 a.m. to walk, but I know my friend will be waiting for me. (Thanks Diane!)
Someone to Have Fun With-Sometimes a girl just needs to have a good laugh.
You may have all this in one or two friends, or it may take more relationships to find what you need.
Whatever you do, don’t neglect friendships with women. We need each other.
